Cleveland Browns player who needs to step up No. 3: Myles Garrett

Listen, I know that Myles Garrett has been playing out of his mind the last two weeks. Not only has he been getting a ton of pressure on the quarterback, (4.5 sacks against Chicago alone) but he has also really stepped up his run-stopping ability as well.

In the last two weeks, Garrett has had nine tackles, five sacks, and four quarterback hits. Some may be asking, what more can Garrett do for this team?

I’m saying Garrett needs to take his game to the next level, making him an elite of elite pass rusher in the NFL. Not only does he need to have six-plus sacks in the next four games, but I also want to see him have at least three turnovers. I don’t care if that is a strip-sack, or forcing a fumble from a running back, to be the defensive most valuable player of the year (which many think he can be), this is the next step for Myles.

The way he has been playing, it’s honestly just a matter of time for this to happen, and I think he has a real shot at turning on the jets for the month of October. With the entire defensive line playing well, Garrett should see plenty of one on one opportunities that he will exploit.
